About RDA

Every year, AIA Atlanta’s Residential Design Awards (RDA) recognize excellence in residential buildings designed by Georgia architects and firms. Submissions for the 9th annual program open in summer 2022, welcoming built projects located anywhere in the world.

Entries must be a commissioned project and the entrant must have held the primary design responsibility. Each project may be entered into only one category. The jury will confer prizes of the Honor Award (the highest recognition) and Merit Award.

Submissions are open to projects of many types and sizes, from mixed-use developments, senior housing, college dorms, and more.
